grace and felicity

Against Which  
habit smacks
its dull skull
like a stuck bull
in a brick stall 
and my version
of what I know
is like eye surgery
with a backhoe 
on grace
so much beyond
my pitiful gray
sponge of a brain 
I'd not believe it exists
except for such
doses of felicity
as this.

— Michael Ryan


  1. What a great word, Ruth: felicity. We should use it more often! Your image alone is felicitous. :)


Welcome. If you would like to say something, rest assured that I will respond in my self, even if I do not respond in word.
